Homemade Chocolate Protein Bars

Jamie Eason's Chocolate Protein Bars taste like a light cake! Two squares is a serving size and only 96 calories. She has other flavors but I didn't care for the lemon flavor and the pumpkin one didn't have a strong enough pumpkin taste. But the chocolate flavor I've made a number of times so I made a few notes in the ingredient list below. Oat flour is just oatmeal grinded in a food processor.

Ingredients:
1 cup Arrowhead Mills - Organic Oat Flour
4 Egg Whites (if using a carton of liquid egg whites use the measurement for 3 egg whites)
2 scoops plain Protein Powder
½ cup Truvia or Ideal (I use Zsweet found at Whole Foods)
½ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Salt
8oz Berry flavored Baby Food (I couldn't find this so I just mashed up berries in my food processor)
3 tbsp Baking Cocoa (I use naturally sugar free raw cocoa by Navitas Naturals found at Whole Foods)
4oz Water (optional)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix dry ingredients (oat flower, protein powder, baking soda, salt, baking cocoa) together in a large bowl.
3. Mix wet ingredients (egg whites, sugar, Berry flavored Baby Food,Water) together in a medium sized  bowl.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together.
5. Spray cooking dish with a non stick spray and add batter to dish.
6. Bake 30-40 minutes in oven or until knife comes out clean.

Makes 16 squares, serving size=2 bars.
